This was the old ‘Flying Review International’ back from the dead. Using the same team of editors, writers and artists as the former title, the new publisher managed to improve on the best of FRI, before that publication went into its final decline. The new title quickly attained the position of Britain’s premier aviation magazine. It was renamed ‘Air Enthusiast International’ in January 1974, then ‘Air International’ in July 1974 to reflect its growing readership. The magazine was widely acclaimed for its authoritative, well written, articles and good mix of civil/military and modern/historical subjects. The feature articles mainly concentrated on aircraft types, air forces/airlines and the pilot’s impressions of flying famous World War Two aircraft types. Always well illustrated, this magazine was the original source of all those cutaway drawings and colour profiles which were widely published in the 1970s and 1980s."

The rest of the magazine comprises well illustrated feature articles on air forces, operational units, aircraft types, combat operations, exercises, air shows etc. The magazine strives to include features on the lesser publicised air arms and also includes para-military organisations such as coast guard air arms. It is noticeable that at least once a year 'Air Forces Monthly' tries to include a deliberately controversial article - often one which provides a distinctly partial viewpoint on a military aviation topic which is open to interpretation.

95 pages, well illustrated, 3-views, pictorial wrappers, very good. 8.5 by 11 inches. From the back cover: Since the earliest days of aviation, the ever-changing shape of the aeroplane has held a special fascination. Over the years, this has led daughtsmen and designers to produce superb, detailed 3-view scale drawings, generally to 1/72 scale, of a whole variety of aircraft from the first biplanes to the modern jet fighter bombers. The purpose of this series is to bring together, ina thematic and organized manner, selections of some of the best of these designs, many of which are hailed as masterpieces of the draughtsman's art. Each book covers a number of aircraft of a particular period or type and, although the emphasis is firmly on the drawings and detailed aspects of these drawgins, each aircraft section includes information on technical data and numerous black and white photographs.

20 Aircraft Illustrated Vol. 1 #1 = Vol. 24 #4 March 1968 - December 1991 [283 Issues] and Aircraft Illustrated Extra Numbers 1 -16 [16 Issues]
Ian Allan 1968-1991 Softcover Good+ with no dust jacket; 1000 9/11, 700 6/12 
283 issues of Aircraft Illustrated and 16 issues of Aircraft Illustrated Extra. Well illustrated, pictorial wrappers. First nineteen years 1968 through 1986 in magazine binders. Two to three years of the latest issues show evidence of exposure to dampness to upper right hand corner due to storage in a garage, otherwise very good. From the UK website of Aeroflight: "AIRCRAFT ILLUSTRATED. First issue on sale 26 February 1968. This magazine was launched to take advantage of developments in printing technology, which allowed large colour photographs to be featured cheaply and often. The content usually comprises large, (often full page) , colour and black and white photographs accompanying fairly brief feature articles covering a very wide range of topics. The magazine went into a period of decline in the late 1980s and early 1990s as newer rival titles took away readers, but it was then completely revamped and is now one of the best general interest aviation magazines you can get anywhere. Published under the title 'Aircraft Illustrated and Air Display International' between circa December 1995 to circa mid 1997. Every issue now offers coverage of a very wide range of aviation topics including: comprehensive aviation news, UK civil register update, UK military aircraft serials update, aircraft spotting, airband radio updates, airshows and preservation news, book and model kit reviews, Internet website reviews, very well illustrated features on civil/military historical/modern subjects. Anyone with even the slightest interest in aviation will find something to read in this magazine." From the same site: 'Aircraft Illustrated Extra' was launched in mid 1969 as a companion to the monthly 'Aircraft Illustrated'. Each issue contained 4-5 articles on a (usually military) single theme, 3-4 full-page colour photos of aircraft types not related to the main theme, and a short photo feature with miscellaneous b+w photos. Roughly A5 size magazine with 48 pages, many b+w photos, 3-4 col photos. The articles were somewhat longer than normally found in the monthly magazine. Only 16 issues published. Replaced by 'Air Extra'.
